Warm Clothing and Coats

Our recess time is at 10:00 AM. Often times it is still in the 40s when we go outside. Please make sure your student is wearing appropriate clothing and has a warm coat. Make sure that girls are wearing tights or leggings under skirts and dresses. If your child does not have a coat please let Ms. O'Quin know and we will get your child one.Free play is important for your child's social, emotional, and physical development. Thank you for your assistance in this matter!
